Prominent migrain pane behind left ear

Hi, well for as long as I can remember I've been getting these very painful migraine type things behind my left ear, thei pretty much underneath that bone that's behind your left ear. It happens about 1 every 2 weeks almost on the dot witch is very strange. Ive had an MRI and a CAT scan a few years ago but it found nothing. Usually it starts to come on around mid day and by night it's at it's strongest until about 6 in the morning. I can't sleep at all when I have it and I usually just take advil and t 3s that where prescribed but they really don't do much. The only thing that seems to work is putting the migraine area on a very hot heating pad, and even sometimes that doesn't work.

Any ideas on what it could be?

Maybe a pinched nerve in your neck. An MRI of your neck with contrast, will show any problems there. This is commonly the source of headaches. Good luck to you. I hope you find relief.
